THE Seagull Theatre has a busy line up over the weekend with the Black Ram Theatre presenting their production of Steel Magnolias, tonight, followed by a one man show featuring Nick Murray Brown, tomorrow.

Set in the sleepy heart of the Deep South, Steel Magnolias follows the trials and tribulations of six women in the town of Chinquipin, Louisiana. Through three years leant over the basins at Truvy's Hair Salon, the audience witnesses the celebrations of marriage, the joys of birth, and the heartbreak of loss. Packed full of anecdotal witticisms, homemade recipes for life and love both in and out of the oven, this slice of American life is one of poignant comedies ever to be produced.

Steel Magnolias presents a cast including local actress and director, Marion Small, who has been involved with the Quaysiders Dramatic Society for over 30 years.

James Prosper Goody, Visions of an Old Campaigner, written, composed and performed by Nick Murray Brown, ends his East Anglian tour tomorrow at the theatre, in Morton Road, Pakefield.

The show is dubbed an astonishing, mesmerising and original new play and, in turn, outrageously funny, at times risqué, moving and thought-provoking with the power to blow a few brain cells out of your head.

East Anglian war veteran JPG looks at topics such as God, evolution, mankind, love and sex in order to understand the world and his place in it. Armed with his squeeze box, some fluffy toy companions and a bag of fairy dust, he takes a roller coaster o'er hill and dale, through rain and sun on a musical, dream-like and cosmic journey.

And next week Jordan Ayers will be bringing his i.Dance show to the Seagull on Wednesday and Thursday presenting a show of musical theatre and dance.

Back by popular demand for the last time the company perform a brand new Finale Show with dances ranging from hip hop, contemporary to musical theatre.

The show is set to a soundtrack including Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Pussycat Dolls, Missy Elliott and many more.
